My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole again.

Grief and loss is a part of every life. Sometimes we can become stuck in a rut and be unable to move on with our lives. Having someone come alongside you and help carry that burden can make all the difference. I believe in the healing power of art when words fail and the healing found in the therapeutic relationship. Many are traumatized by the losses they have endured and only need to reach out for help.

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

People who have experienced grief or loss can wonder if life will ever return to normal. Loss changes us; it is an intimate experience that leaves us feeling vulnerable, perhaps overwhelmed. Supportive and engaged counseling can make all the difference in moving forward with life. Counseling is different than talking with a friend; we'll look at what has changed for you and how to overcome the obstacles you face in moving forward.

Thrive Counseling offers both individual and group grief support programs for grieving children, adolescents and their families/guardians.

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

Life is too short and living with unresolved grief can lead to many health related issues for the family of the deceased. We all need helps in such a time like this!
